Nólsoy, Faroe Islands

I received my first Faroe Islands card almost two years ago.
Now I have my second card from there....with the GREATEST difference that this time it is Written and Stamped! :D


On the card you can take a glimpse of Nólsoy, which is an island and village in central Faroe Islands, located to the east of the capital Tórshavn. There is only one settlement on the island: Nólsoy on the north-west coast on Stongin, a peninsula attached to the rest of the island by a metres-wide isthmus.Nólsoy has the world's largest colony of Storm petrels, and is also home to the first known wild population of Common Frogs in the Faroe Islands.
Nólsoy has an annual civic festival called Ovastevna, which is in the beginning of August.
So if you have no plans for that time of the year, I think it would be interesting to pay a visit....as long as the Icelandic volcano doesnt interfere....again :)



The stamp is from a set of 2 stamps issued in 2009 representing Altarpieces.

Thanks the MOST to Gunnva for helping me with this card!

How lucky to get a card from the Faroes! I don't think I ever shall.
